Some Tottenham fans on social media believe that a move for Sami Khedira during the January transfer window could make sense for the North Londoners after the Juventus star seemingly issued a come-and-get-me plea to Jose Mourinho.

Khedira has fallen out of favour at Juve since the arrival of Andre Pirlo and admitted in an interview to Sky Sports last week that playing in the Premier League has always been a dream of his.

The 33-year-old, who worked with Mourinho at Real Madrid, also admitted that he would find it difficult to say no to an approach from the Tottenham boss.

Some Spurs fans on social media are not put off by the idea of signing Khedira as they believe that the midfielder could prove a useful stopgap until Oliver Skipp is ready to claim a starting birth in the team.

There were a few suggestions that the World Cup winner could be Tottenham’s version of James Milner, particularly given that the Lilywhites lack a natural defensive midfielder in the squad apart from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

However, others insisted that Khedira was well past his best and doubted whether he would be able to deal with the intensity of the Premier League.
